Be a member and support the UK's Armed Forces Community.

We are a community 235,000-strong. Each member plays a vital role in supporting our charity.

Members build relationships. They share experiences with like-minded people, and have a say in the way we run the Legion by voting through the branch network.

But most importantly, they provide support to those that need it. From being at the end of a phone line and visiting in times of need, to holding Remembrance and local community events throughout the UK.

All to help get the word out about the service we provide.

Join the community today and:

  • Experience comradeship in our clubs and with the Armed Forces community, past and present
  • Be involved in the governance of the Legion by voting through our branch network
  • Get involved in branch community support
  • Keep informed about  the Legion by receiving regular copies of the Legion magazine
  • Receive a membership card showing your support to the Legion
